What's this? Treking in the reserves, a keen pair of eyes is very important. And don't just look ahead, there are life forms everywhere, high and low, in the air and in the water and in little corners or holes.

These were huge spiders, with legs stretched out could easily fit a lady's palm. And they hanged above the heads along the tracks. The first spider, the Golden Orb Web spider (top two photos of top and bottom views) was found along the tunnel passage on the way in before the main entrance to the reserve. This is the biggest spider specie in the reserve.

The bottom one (yellow legs) was found along the track after I exited from a hide. It was spotted by a child. It was slightly smaller. There are many other small varieties in the bushes and in the hides.
